I didn't get a chance last night to write more about Nefrackedska, err, Nebraska. If one looks at a radar map of North America at the moment, you'll notice a giant storm with it's low pressure center along the Minnestota/Michigan border. The storm is almost a hurricane in size. But it does not have the same forces. The storm looks like a giant comma as it spins around and travels east. I just want to note that the center of the low pressure earlier in its track was directly over Nebraska at or about the time of the earthquake. Hmmm.

Oh, as I was searching... this....
articles.aberdeennews.com...

The story says there is no proven link between fracking and earthquakes. Not true. This would be a lie. The British Geologists have made the link. Also, have a quake shallower than the fracking zone does not disprove that the quake was caused by movement deeper. This is stupid. If a strata of rock is under pressure and is expanded and disturbed, how can this not effect the strata above the zone. And, how does the fracking drills get to those depths? Do they magically start their drilling process at the core of the earth? No, they drill down through the offending shallow level as the search for gas. How do we know that the casings have no been breached? The fracking water could be filling an aquifer and this added pressure could be responsible for the frackquake- err earthquake.

Wow, I was going to direct you all to look at the area of Nebraska where the quake hit because there is an amazing geological feature. The sandhills. This all has to do with a glacial lake and a flood etc. Too much to get into here. But, what I did find was a massive aquifer under and very near our earthquake. If low pressure was involved to help kick start the earthquake, then I believe water is the element which is the catalyst. If low pressure is also causing earthquakes in the Northern Atlantic, the low pressure must remove some weight above the fault as the storm passes. Also, when the low pressure passes over a land mass, this lower pressure will lessen the force on the land and the water underneath will expand and try to fill the void. Of course, the low pressure is not vacuum, so you will not have the same effect, but you will have a slight change as you have changing stresses. The effect would not be unlike a tidal increase. And if this low pressure system comes at a time of high tide, then you'll have a slight amplification.

blah blah blah.
i talk too much

oh, here's a shot of the largest aquifer under the U.S.

i checked and the earthquake was under the aquifer. that is if the depth is correct. here's a report that thery're were incredible winds at the time of the earthquake. the article even goes so far as to discount the winds as a cause of the quake. huh?????
www.omaha.com...-hills-residents-wake-to-quake

Well, I'd like to say that in a respect, the winds were part of it. Transition. Change. Winds come with changing weather systems. There is a rapid change happening where you find winds. Those narrow isobars. I think I got that right.

Maybe the earthquake was totally natural and I have a bug up my Or, maybe, maybe they've been drawing water so fast from the aquifer that the changing levels have activated an ancient fault. Or....


Oh, while I'm at it and while I have a few minutes left in this window, I'll tell you my newest theory. It's a great conspiracy theory. Here goes...

The US Army has long know that injection causes quakes. They've been getting rid of their nastier chemicals weapons this way. Just pump that nerve gas way down deep in the ground and soon everyone will forget about it. Out of sight out of mind. Sweeping it under the terrestrial carpet. It worked. And maybe somehow this stuff stays out of the aquifers...

Skip forward to today. Oh, we now have computers. So, what does everyone having computers and earthquakes have in common. Well, in one way, stories on the internet behave like earthquakes in that they have similar energy dispersement patterns. Better check this _ Probably going to run out of time.

Anyway, the study found that people spread information in big shock, followed by a bunch of little aftershocks.

So, here's where the U.S. could be using earthquakes as a way to launch a cyber attack against an enemy. It seems that when you have an earthquake in the USA, everyone gets excited. Even the ones that take earthquakes in stride still talk about them. I'm talking about you westcoasters who think you are much nerver than the eastcoasters. Do you remember the media excitement during the Virgina quake? I do. And when the New England quake hit this week, I thought man, we get all a buzz when the earth shakes. Hmm. So, why not cause and earthquake and if you know the timing and location, you can use the zombie computers you have at your disposal to launch an attack. Because what's the first thing everyone does when there's an earthquake in the populated east coast area?

They're going to tweet about it. And if you control that network, you can direct tweets like a big tweet amplification ray and point it at Iran.

shut the frack up robin and go get something done.....

One thing I did note is that there was that quake in New Zealand and I also saw a news report about weather and New Zealand was being batter by super high winds???

Coincidence? Muzzy was expecting quakes because it had been relatively quiet.

Japan August 2012 Numbers Count All (8427) and TTNT Energy Released

This was on the back burner since I lost the data on one of my USB sticks nearly 2 months ago
I've carried on after the last post of 24th Aug and finished it.
It would have been done sooner but I realised today when I got to Aug 31st that I had been breaking down the days in JST rather than UTC ( what I did the previous 24 days) so had to do it all again.


Heres the results, total numbers
mag1= 5643
mag2= 2078
mag3= 595
mag4= 95
mag5= 14
mag6= 1 Hikada Mts, Hokkaido 6.1
mag7= 1 Sea of Okhotsk 7.0
total= 8427 events

Total Energy Released for August 1,389,697.049TTNT


there is more graphs on the Japan Graphs page and from there you can go view a map for every day of Aug by clicking the August 2012 "Category" on the side column (not the "archive" August 2012, thats the dates the posts were made)

even the Japan August 3+ figures blow me away = 706
compare that to;
Turkey = 115
Greece = 100
New Zealand = 180
Continental USA = 92
Alaska = 130
Virgin Islands = 222 * note to self, that needs mapping

It's getting too quiet, I have the feeling we're in for a bigger quake somewhere again.

OK I give in, with 222 earthquakes over magnitude 3 at the Puerto Rican Trench near the Virgin Islands in August thats too many to just ignore because I don't like the way USGS is presenting their data these days, so I have created a page just for the US and territories.

The United States Geological Survey (or USGS) has its own web site with quite comprehensive earthquake data archives with lists, maps and search pages, however if you wanted to see a map of anything older than 90 days you are out of luck, that is as far back as they go, anything before is just search results from the ANSS or NEIC catalog’s in text format, without locations. Some states have their own Geological Survey Departments but it is hard to find a historical one month map of earthquake events for say the whole of the Continental USA or for Alaska or The Virgin Islands for example.
So this page is not set out to compete with USGS or copy what they have already done, but to add to it.
The three areas mentioned above are the focus of this page and will be presented as an interactive map for each month of the year with magnitude 3+ events only.
Usually the maps will be about one month behind the current date, this is to allow for the many revisions alterations and deletions that take place during the initial analysis stage after the events.

I have taken the LDEO page and used that, LDEO is too hard to follow on a regular basis, I kept forgetting to download their data and after a week or so its gone forever.
Hopefully the maps answer a few questions, but they are more likely to raise more


UGS-USA 3+ page

the address may change tomorrow, I haven't got time right now to change all the menus and categories, dinner is ready


I'll probably chuck a Hawaii map in there next to the Virgin Is. as well, they only had 5 quakes above mag 3 in August, but I separated them out from the 15,325 lines of data anyway.
Puerto Rica might fit into the VI map too
Later

I'm very puzzled...USGS shows a 5.9 in Oregon ??? I can't find it on any other maps.
It says Oct. 19th ...yet it's the 20th.
Can anyone check into this please???

new page of its own for UGS Monthly Archives mag 3+

Added September 2012 this morning.
not many in the Continental US - 35
of course August had the Brawley Swarm
Puerto Rico /Virgin Island has even more than Aug - 378

just noticed I spelled Rico wrong on my page, getting mixed up with Costa Rica


Anyone doing a Yellowstone map? I don't really follow that topic but noticed the name on the data as a separate text location so would be easy enough to make a monthly map to track events there.

IRIS Seismic Monitor is showing the 5.9 in Oregon.
I also just noticed after clicking the "last 30 days earthquakes" tab....it has a 0.0 magnitude.
Definitely an error.

What the heck, did it anyway


Yellowstone Monthly Archive
Is only Aug, Sept and Oct at this stage.
As it says on the popup tags source is USGS, I used QVS Pro to get that data (as I did with the main USA page)
Any other sources other than USGS for Yellowstone?
Not that I don't trust them


That page is the 13th page on EQArchives (posts are seperate), hope I haven't jinxed it and it goes off now

Looks like it is OK now.

So, no Mag 5's for well over 24 hrs - where is the next biggie? Anyone want to hazard a guess?

Mag 7 Vanuatu any one?

Making a rod for your own back there Muzzy.

Last night I was on the computer and one came in for the 15th @ around 03:15 - popped up on the Alerts screen so it did, bold as brass and 4 days late!!!!

Ah well I was 4 points off, but spot on the area.

I posted at 23:08 IST so 22:08 UTC and there we are at 23:00 - Vanuatu.

Humph!!! USGS just brought it down to 6.2 Mi
